Charity Shop Transformation: Making a DIY £1 Topshop Leopard Print Denim Jacket!

Wednesday, 17 October 2018

Hellooooo again!
I'm back again with another Charity Shop Transformation and if you're thinking 'What the heck is that?!?', I'll give you a lil summary...
If you're an avid reader of my blog, you will know how much I adore Charity Shopping and how much I adore to share the pieces I find with you! My #CharityShopBop posts get such amazing feedback so I decided that Infinity of Fashion needed some more Charity Shop goodness as it's content I love to share and you love to read! So, I present to you...
Charity Shop Transformation!!!

One of the main comments I get when people try and go Charity Shopping is...
 'How do you find this stuff?! Whenever I go it looks just like my Grandparents wardrobe!'

Well yes, that's because it pretty much is but you have to look past that and think how YOU could make it your own. From turning skirts into two pieces, tops into crops, I want to show you how things that look awful on the hanger can be changed into something stunning! It's  more sustainable, its cheaper and you're money goes to a good cause. 

For todays transformation I want you all to have a search round your wardrobe, your parents wardrobes or root in your local charity shops and see if you've got a spare denim jacket that needs a little loving. Then head to your local charity shop or Grandparents wardrobe and pick up some material you love; it could be an large old skirt, an old shirt or even just a pretty patterned material! 
The next steps will show you how I turned my old denim jacket into a chic, in style piece very similar to one on Topshop being sold for £59 yet mine only set me back £1...
Aaaaaaaaand... those are the simple steps to re-creating a Topshop Denim Jacket!
If you don't have access to a sewing machine, carefully hand-sewing the panels in place could definitely work as well and if leopard print isn't your thing, use whatever fabric you wish, theres no rules! 

Customising clothing and making things unique is something which feels so rewarding to me, strutting about in my personalised jacket makes me feel so confident because it has been turned into something 100% me. I urge you all to open up your wardrobe, pick out some pieces that need a bit of extra love and do some research on how you could change them up or even DM me, I'm happy to help! I want to inspire and influence people to start thinking differently about fashion because as an industry, it is damaging our planet on such a drastic scale and small changes like up-cycling clothing instead of buying brand new can make a big difference. 

Let me know if you have a go at your own transformations and use the hashtag #CharityShopBop along with tagging me to do so!

  1. This is such a good idea and it looks so good! I do quite a bit of charity shop shopping as it is but I've never really thought about creating my own garment out of things I've found, definitely a challenge I'm willing to accept haha!
